OK, that must be photoshopped video. If I tried that, it would have crashed and burned on the first pass. Pine needles would jam up the motor and a branch would have "..poked an eye out."

Not to mention, how could it possibly be kept level? Don't you spend hours trying to get the tree to stand straight? And is the best side of the layout (tree) facing outwards?

Is it mag-lev track? What the heck hold it up, not those chintzy wire hooks from the glass balls?

Hey wait a minute...is the track moving up and down? What grade is that!
